JS 500cc F3
2 January 2020

A unique car, made in Belgium by Lucien Quadbach, raced in the early 1950’s, Topolino based

Sold to Luca Dupanloup (1945--2000) a cartoonist, involved with the TinTin character. Upon his death, the original JAP engine had been removed for rebuild---it never returned.

The history is not known but the nature of motor racing over this period was very local and informal and unlikely to be recorded. It is supposed to have run in France and Benelux, there was a Swiss oil label sticker on the engine cover.

The car is variously mentioned in the publication "Bibel Du Racer 500"

The car was purchased in September 2009 by a Formula Junior owner/driver, and was at some stage sent to the UK and offered to members of the 500 fraternity.

It lay in storage for a number of years, and I purchased it in August 2017. It appeared to have been prepared for display in a museum and could not be driven!

An exhaust system, narrow bore with twin entry to the silencer, together with engine mounting plates from a motorcycle were supplied

The car was supplied with a JAP engine, which proved to be very much a BITSA----as was the Norton Laydown gearbox. The 4b engine and the transmission have been rebuilt by acknowledged tradesmen and enthusiasts. The missing carburettor has been replaced by a new, of the period, Gardner.


The rebuild is almost complete, and the car has a VIF, # 117


The reason for sale, is that following a knee operation, I am not 100% and this has sadly clipped my wings

The drive has been set up, with the help of 500 club members to give optimal performance with the 4b engine 


The car is at Sissinghurst Kent, asking price £15000, which includes a covered trailer and a battery powered starter.

Midget car - Not sure what it is !
13 June 2019

Mike Doodemans has been in touch and discovered a car that may be of interest in the Netherlands.

"I found this little racer in the Netherlands.
restored 40 years ago and since then sitting and looking good.. but never started.
it's only 150cc
The owner claims it's pre war, but as the engine is in the back and seeing how it is constructed.. it could be 40's 50's.. but who am I!?
Engine 2 stroke Villiers with a 3 speed Terrot gearbox.
Probably a one off from France / Italy
230 cm long, 110 cm wide and around 130 kilo's
a Don Parker type of gentleman could fit.. but it looks more like it's been a teenagers dream racer
aim price is 9500 euro's 
With Croix next month I can arrange transport to the weekend so maybe handy for somebody who might be interested."
150cc Villiers engine overhauled but never started
3-speed Terrot gearbox

target price € 9500
I had restored this car 40 years ago.
